What are your home remedies for a cold/flu?

I started having symptoms last night (scratchy throat, tired.. ), this morning I woke up and I couldn't speak.

I usually take echinacea and get some rest....

Just curious as to what you do.

I've gotten good results with megadoses of red wine and Italian food......
That will cure anything !

I just had some homemade chicken soup and I'm feeling a bit better.

I think it's the flu and not a cold, usually when I have a cold I just cough without feeling run down.

The chicken soup did act as an expectorant.

I'm out of booze and honey and I'm not up to walking to the store.

I don't know if any of you have ever chewed raw garlic before, but it will make you puke!

I've rediscovered good old Vicks Vaporub, works very well.
